Kemal’s guesthouse is a lovely old Ottoman house and the big dining/sitting room is a lovely place to be. Unfortunately we never felt entirely welcome in there. We couldn’t sit on the sofa and read books or use our computer, because Barbara and/or Kemal were often sat there eating or watching TV and it didn’t feel right to intrude. I was shocked and upset to be asked to go up to my room to use Skype because Kemal was ‘sleeping’ – at 5pm! We had been told the internet worked in our room but it didn’t and we thought it odd that they didn’t know this. Our room was interesting with a good view and lots of light. It could have been cleaner and the standard of décor was a bit scruffy – paint drips down the woodwork. The breakfast was brilliant. I was offered tea by Julia, who helps in the guesthouse, and then was surprised to see two cups charged on the bill – a small amount yes but a petty addition. Frankly I wished we had looked around a bit more and stayed somewhere else. However, our neighbour, a young girl from Australia, had quite a different experience maybe Barbara and Kemal prefer younger guests. Sadly our stay was marred by a feeling more like being a child in a boarding school rather than a paying guest in a pension. This is our first complaint on this journey of one year which is now nearly six months old and we are not complaining people.
